I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 12 and prescribed adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and it changed my life for the better. Would I be able to get tx at age 29? I haven't

Maybe: Prescribing any drug needs to be backed up by documented need, physical exam and any studies the physician feels appropriate. Adderall is closely monitored by the feds and state. Adults who had ADHD as a kid are less likely to be labeled drug seekers as adults, but expect any physician, neurologist or psychiatrist who agrees to treat you to spend some time justifying the need before agreeing to. ...Read more

I sleep all night, but when I get up in the morning, I feel so exhausted that I am back in bed by 1 pm. I feel so tired that I can't keep my eyes open. My doctor prescribed Adderall several months ago, but there has been no change. What should I do?

I sleep all night, but when I get up in the morning, I feel so exhausted that I am back in bed by 1 pm. I feel so tired that I can't keep my eyes open. My doctor prescribed Adderall several months ago, but there has been no change. What should I do?

Exhausted: First recommendation - have a formal evaluation about your sleep. You might be exhausted because it is not restorative. This can also be a manifestation of depression and a stimulant is not always helpful in that setting. If evaluation leads to repeated recommendation for stimulant, then evaluate if dose and type best for you. ...Read more

Can I tell me how I can get work done on non-adderall days?

Can I tell me how I can get work done on non-adderall days?

Non Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) Days: I assume you are calling those days you are not taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I don't see why that happens. All medications for add/adhd should be administered every day including weekends and holidays, to prevent falls in the level of the medicine during those days off. If you work with a psychiatrist, you must have 30 days supply of your medications, and also practice behavioral exercises to reduce symptoms. ...Read more

Doctor: You just don't "get these drugs" so you can concentrate better.

Otherwise, good nights sleep and proper diet will work better to help you concentrate better on a day-to-day basis. ...Read more

Ran out of adderall not gettin new script till tm, have left over vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) from when I used to be prescribed before I switched, ok for me to take 1 day?

Depends on dose: Adderall is a mixture of amphetamine salts while Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is just one component of Addersll. The general equivalence is 30 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 10 mg of Addersll, 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 20 mg Addersll & 70 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)= 30 mg of Adderall. If you were taking a dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) equivalent to your Adderall you should be safe in the short run. ...Read more

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

No, and you shouldn't: Be playing doctor (or pharmacist). Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) has been removed from the American market for some time because it has a great potential to increase pulse and blood pressure, and was associated with a number of severe adverse events in patients taking them, as was phenylpropylamine. What you are doing is abuse, and is not helping your ADHD. Discuss with your psychiatrist if you are having problems. ...Read more

Taking a noc 6mg Lunesta, 30mg Valium (5mg, plus 75mg effexER? I'm supposed to be on Adderall 40mg day. What OTC can be used 2 get me off them.

Medications: Good to hear you would like to get off of the Lunesta and Valium as these are not good for long term use. I would suggest you seek help with prescribing M.D. to taper off of these. As for replacement, there are no great alternatives that are OTC. Better would be to seek help with behavioral therapy, sleep therapy, meditation etc. To help you overcome insomnia and anxiety. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to get a second script of a non XR Adderall to supplement when you don't need the xr? Before I need a refill? I have 30 mg XR now but I don't need it to last that long every day I don't get another script for a while can I get a second supp

Each: Each psychiatrist has different thoughts regarding this. I recommend that you talk to your psychiatrist about your request for a shorter acting stimulant on some days. Some psychiatrists may wish to keep your medications as uniform as possible (i.e., not changing dose of the basic medication on different days). It is not uncommon to have mixes of stimulants. For instance: a patient uses a long acting stimulant to get him through his workday. The stimulant choice is perfect and starts wearing off at the end of his workday. However, he also goes to night school two days per week. The stimulant has worn off by the time he gets to class. So, a short acting stimulant can be taken in the afternoon to get him through class two days per week. And because it is short acting, it allows him to go to sleep later. None of the doctors here will be able to answer this question because it is one that you and your psychiatrist will need to address together. ...Read more

Not from any site: Such medications are class 2 controlled substances monitored closely by the feds.
